ACTION: Notice of extension of public scoping comment period for the Air Tour Management Plan Program at Golden Gate National Recreation Area, San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park and Point Reyes National Seashore. jlentini on DSK4TPTVN1PROD with NOTICES AGENCY: This notice extends the public scoping comment period for the Air Tour Management Plan (ATMP) for Golden Gate National Recreation Area (GGNRA) and Point Reyes National Seashore (the Seashore) that was published in the Federal Register on July 28, 2011 (76 FR 45312). The original date that the comment period would end was September 28, 2011. During that time the National Park Service (NPS) Planning, Environment and Public Comment Web site (PEPC) experienced some technical complications that made it difficult for everyone’s comments to be captured on the system. That public scoping comment period date will now be extended until October 21, 2011. The FAA, with NPS as a cooperating agency, has initiated development of ATMPs for GGNRA and the Seashore. The ATMP for GGNRA will include Muir Woods National Monument and Fort Point National Historic Site, both directly managed by GGNRA, and the San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park (SF Maritime NHP), an independently managed national park unit adjacent to GGNRA. The ATMPs are being developed pursuant to the National Parks Air Tour Management Act (NPATMA) of 2000 (Pub. L. 106–181) and it’s implementing VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:33 Oct 06, 2011 Jkt 226001 regulations (14 Code of Federal Regulation [CFR] part 136, Subpart B, National Parks Air Tour Management). Per section 40128(b)(1)(B) of NPATMA, the objective of an ATMP shall be to develop acceptable and effective measures to mitigate or prevent significant adverse impacts, if any, of commercial air tour operations upon the natural and cultural resources, visitor experiences and tribal lands within or abutting GGNRA and the Seashore. It should be noted that an ATMP has no authorization over other non-air-tour operations such as military and general aviation. In compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) and FAA Order 1050.1E, an Environmental Assessment (EA) is being prepared. The FAA has granted Interim Operating Authority (IOA) to two commercial air tour operators to conduct air tours over GGNRA, SF Maritime NHP, and the Seashore. The FAA and NPS are now inviting the public, agencies, tribes, and other interested parties to provide comments, suggestions, and input on the scope of issues and range of alternatives to be addressed in the environmental process. DATES: By this notice, the FAA is extending the public scoping comment period for the EA for the individual ATMPs at GGNRA and SF Maritime NHP, and the Seashore. The original date that the comment period would end was September 28, 2011. That date will now be extended until October 21, 2011. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Keith Lusk—Mailing address: P.O.

The meetings will be open to the public for their duration. During the first two days, Monday–Tuesday, October 24–25, 2011, a working group of the subcommittee will discuss with FMCSA technical specifications related to wireless communications protocols that may be needed to ensure successful and secure transmission of data from electronic onboard recorders (EOBRs) to enforcement officials. The next two days, Wednesday–Thursday, October 26–27, 2011, will be devoted to a meeting of the full MCSAC EOBR subcommittee. The working group and subcommittee will discuss technical issues the full MCSAC should consider in providing input to the Agency as it develops functional specifications for EOBRs used in lieu of handwritten records of duty status (RODS). Time and Dates: The meetings will be held Monday–Thursday, October 24–27, 2011, from 8:30 am to 5 pm, E.T. at the Sheraton Crystal City, 1800 Jefferson Davis Highway, Arlington, VA, 22202, in meeting rooms Crystal V and VI. Matters To Be Considered: The subcommittee will continue its review of the functional specifications for EOBRs published by FMCSA as part of SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00161 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 MCSAC Section 4144 of the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA–LU) (Pub. L. 109–59, 119 Stat. 1144, August 10, 2005) required the Secretary of Transportation to establish a Motor Carrier Safety Advisory Committee. The committee provides advice and recommendations to the FMCSA Administrator on motor carrier safety programs and regulations and operates in accordance with the Federal Advisory Committee Act (5 U.S.C. App 2). EOBRs On April 5, 2010, FMCSA issued a final rule that required the use of EOBRs by motor carriers with significant hoursof-service violations, as determined through an on-site enforcement intervention (75 FR 17208). The rule also set forth new technical requirements or functional specifications for EOBRs used in lieu of handwritten RODS. The compliance date for the rule was June 4, 2012. The Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association (OOIDA) filed a petition for judicial review of the EOBR final rule with the Seventh Circuit. On August 26, 2011, the Seventh Circuit vacated the final rule because the Agency failed to consider a statutory mandate to ‘‘ensure that [EOBRs] are not used to harass vehicle operators’’ (49 U.S.C. 31137(a)). [Owner-Operator Indep. Drivers Ass’n., et al. v. Fed. Motor Carrier Safety Admin., No. 10– 2340 (7th Cir. 2011).] The Agency will not appeal the court’s decision and will issue a final rule at a later date to remove all regulatory text from the Code of Federal Regulations related to the vacated April 5, 2010, final rule.
